We left the park in the afternoon and headed towards Lake Victoria to camp over before heading into Kenya the next day.
Only found two camping spots on Trip Advisor in the area and chose one. It was a beautiful spot, situated on a tiny peninsula jutting into the lake.
We sat on the rocks watching the striking sunset. Our bliss did not last long as were soon swamped with millions of lake flies/”miggies” as we know them. Fortunately they were not the biting type…We ordered a quick meal of fresh fish at the lodge and then hastily jumped into the roof top tent to avoid the miggies covering our car.
The next morning we headed out in a hurry, as we had to get through the Kenyan border post and get to St Paul’s University in Limuru, a town just north of Nairobi, where Marc would attend and speak at a community development workshop of NetACT (an Africa wide network of theological seminaries & universities).
Unbeknown to us, one of our tyres had not survived the bad park roads…As we drove out from the lodge, the manager stopped us and asked us a favour, to break up a $50 note for him. While Marc was looking for the change another guest noticed that we had a flat tyre and informed us… our first and hopefully only one of the trip. Almost immediately two young guys offered to help change the tyre and they watched in fascination as Marc plugged the hole (did “surgery” on the tyre as they called it) with his repair kit. God continues to be faithful!
